Revive The Rose is a rock band from my hometown, Welland, ON. They have released their very own beer called, the Bar Down Lager.
Although their song "Bar Down" was released in 2018 as a single, it has now been revived and featured as a warm-up song in the brand new NHL 2021 game, hence the drop of this beer in collaboration with Taps Brewhouse.
The beer is described as a crisp, easy-drinking Lager infused with Rosehips and Hibiscus Flowers. It has a rosy red colour, floral aromas, and a berry flavour. It also comes in two different sizes, 32oz for the "pre-drink", or the 64 oz "full-tilt."
As for my opinion, when it comes to beer I am more of an IPA person. With that said, I was intrigued by hearing about a lager with a berry infused flavour. When I took the first sip, I could taste the crisp classic lager however, moments later I got the floral notes and very fruity after taste. This is by far the sweetest lager I've ever tried however, it's not an overwhelming sweet. This is perfect for those who love a classic lager and are looking for a bit of a twist, as well as IPA lovers.
You can try the Bar Down Lager at various bars across Niagara, and also order online and have it delivered directly to your door here.
